League Two side Leyton Orient have signed former West Ham youngsters Paul McCallum and Blair Turgott.

Striker McCallum and forward Turgott, both 21, played under new Orient boss Ian Hendon in the Premier League club's development squad.

Turgott left the Hammers in January to join Coventry, while McCallum was released at the end of last season.

McCallum has agreed a two-year contract, while Turgott has signed a one-year deal with the O's.

The duo become Orient's third and fourth signings of the summer.

McCallum did not feature for West Ham's first team after joining from Dulwich Hamlet in 2011 and has had loan spells at AFC Wimbledon, Aldershot, Torquay, Hearts and Portsmouth

Turgott, who came through the club's youth ranks, made one senior appearance for the east London club, but also spent time at Bradford, Colchester, Rotherham and Dagenham.

The England Under-19 international scored one goal in three appearances for Coventry following his move to the Ricoh Arena in January.
